New Muslims - Maintaining Relations with Non-Muslim Family
  • Question:

    Please advise if a revert to Islam has to give up or dis- own their non-Muslim family members such as their father and sisters, nephews and nieces?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Absolutely not! In fact you should treat them even better than before so that they would see the beauty of faith through your actions. Most of the verses in the Quran revealed about treating your parents well were in regards to companions who’s parents had not yet embraced Islam.

    And Allah knows best.
